Today is Giving Tuesday, a day designated to honor and support nonprofits on following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. American’s Wild Horse Families count on the Cloud Foundation, a recognized leader in the fight to protect and preserve them on our western public lands. Can we count on you?
ABOUT THE CLOUD FOUNDATION
The Cloud Foundation, is a Colorado 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, that grew out of Ginger Kathrens’ knowledge and fear for not only Cloud’s herd but other wild horses in the West. “I began to realize that we were losing America’s wild horses,” Ginger says. “They are rounded up by the thousand, losing in an instant what they value most–freedom and family. I realized that even Cloud and his family were in danger.”

Black and Blue
An anonymous resident of East Texas shared his opinion of the Black Lives Matter movement.
ORIGIN: In August 2016 a photograph of an elderly man from the East Texas city of Tyler, along with a quote attributed to him about the Black Lives Matter movement, was posted online. The combination quickly became a viral hit, buoyed by the ongoing discourse around racism and racial tensions in the United States: “I don’t get all this ‘Black Lives Matter’ — ‘Blue Lives Matter’ divide. I been around here since ’57 and I never been to jail. All I see now are these young-in’s running around getting shot because they think they can do whatever they want. That’s not how it works, but you can’t tell them that. I know what real racism looks like and I haven’t seen the likes of that ugly face in years. What needs to happen is unity. Respect your fellow man and 99% of the time, they’ll respect you back no matter what you look like. I’m living proof of that.”
The image was first shared to the “People of East Texas” Facebook page on 15 August 2016. As with the enormously popular “Humans of New York” Facebook page and web site, “People of East Texas” interviews local residents and then shares highlights from those interviews along with photographs read more…
Students and activists at the University of Texas at Austin voiced their displeasure with the campus carry law that went into effect earlier this month across the state by strapping sex toys to their backpacks and grabbing suggestively themed T-shirts.
Um. I know in some works of literature, weapons like swords or long guns are phallic symbols, but I’m just not sure how protesting guns on campus inspired these “students” to think the best way to protest was with dildos. Someone want to help me out here?
A protest organizer told the Austin American-Statesman that if the demonstration seemed over the top, that was the intent. Ana López said the demonstration was created to flout obscenity laws while protesting legalizing handguns on campus.
The protests, though, seemed to be getting little serious pushback. University administrators were quick to describe the protest as protected political speech. And a student concealed carry group also supported the protesters’ free speech rights, touting a “gun/dildo alliance.” More here: http://louderwithcrowder.com/ut-studends-protest-concealed-carry-with-sex-toys/#.V78nUygrLIU
(TMZ) Joey Chestnut says he’s been training like Rocky in the “Rocky IV” montage — killing himself to get his 4th of July hot dog eating title back … and says he’s in the BEST eating shape of his life!!!!
Chestnut — sporting a playoff beard — shockingly lost his championship belt to Matt Stonie last year — who destroyed 62 hot dogs in 10 minutes … defeating Chestnut, who only put down 60.
But Joey tells TMZ Sports … he’s been busting his ass to get back in top form — and brags that he recently broke his own wiener record of 69 … by woofing down 73.5 at the July 4th qualifier!!!!
For many years, from the time Graceland opened to the public on June 7, 1982, the tour guide staff informally kept a list of the celebrities who visited. We’ve missed a few names along the way and, unfortunately, we did not always keep track of the dates. Once we created this feature for the web site, record-keeping of celebrity visits became a bit more formalized. Our list is updated continually as more celebrities visit and we continue to add names we missed from years past whenever someone recalls one. If you know of someone we missed and, please do let us know and we’ll add the name if we can document the visit. In all the hubbub around here, word sometimes doesn’t get to the web staff to post. E-mails from fans to help out are always appreciated.

Is this the supermarket of the future?
This solution claims to improve customer service, maximise convenience, increase product choice and cut queuing times – all while lowering costs for the vendor
Picture the scene. You’re on your way home when you remember the fridge is empty but you don’t have a pound for the trolley and parking is a nightmare. Or you promised to pick up a six-pack of beer en route to a friend’s party but it’s pouring with rain and parking is still a nightmare.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could pick up a few essentials without getting out of your car?
Russian inventor Semenov Dahir Kurmanbievich filed a patent for a drive-through supermarket that would make all that possible.
NEW FEMINIST CAUSE: Going Topless on #GoTopless Day.
Don’t Stare, You Sexist!!
NEW FEMINIST CAUSE: Going Topless on #GoTopless Day. Don’t Stare, You Sexist!!
It’s getting harder to keep track of all the different feminist causes for women. There’s body shaming, fat shaming, the nonexistent pay gap thing and growing super long pubic hair… well now it’s just going topless in public. Because men can go topless in public. Therefore women should go topless. Because equality. Also boners.
That’s right, women took to the streets of New York without shirts or bras. Their nipples were free. Their words, seriously. #FreeTheNipple is real. Welcome to Boobfest 2015. And really, there are worse things. Because I like boobs. And I generally like fests.
But it does beg the question, why can men go without a shirt and women can’t? – Bro-tip: if you have giant manboobs, maybe you should cover them up– Is it the male patriarchy again? No, not really. It’s actually because men and women are different. Yeah, yeah, sexism, blah, blah, I know. Men and women. Different. A woman’s chest has breasts, and they’re used best in feeding a child. Also, motor-boating. So give it a rest. Woman’s breasts, therefore, are used in a sexual/reproductive function, where a man’s nipples are decorative only. Decorative for what, jury’s still out. It’s kind of God’s equivalent to letting angels toss tinsel on the tree. He wanted them to feel useful, but at the end of the day, it’s not a pretty sight.
These same women parading around without shirts, nipples bouncing about, are the same women who insist we celebrate breast-feeding. Which, by the way, totally different than walking downtown with the knockers hanging out. Feeding a baby vs. causing a traffic accident… Not the same. But this point only goes to show that men and women are different (more sexism) and our bodies are used for different things. Sorry, ladies, men cannot feed babies with their man nipples. I know, I know, biology is so unfair Read more

Why tomorrow’s [TODAY’S 11/25] full moon is especially important
Story from HelloGiggles.com
Anna Gragert / November 24, 2015 5:30 pm
The moon is at it again, guys. And this time it’s going to help us let go of the past as we prepare for Jack Frost’s winter reign.
Tomorrow night [TONIGHT 11/25,] the full moon will appear in all its spherical glory, and Refinery29 kindly pointed this out. But, this isn’t any old full moon – it’s actually known as the Mourning Moon. Other societies refer to it as the Snow Moon or Fog Moon. Certain Native American tribes prefer to call it The Moon When Deer Shed Antlers. And speaking of shedding, this special moon is symbolic of autumn’s end and winter’s beginning.
According to Pagan traditions, the Mourning Moon is meant to signify a time of evolution. As this moon rises in the sky, it is recommended that we let go of the baggage we’ve been holding on to. We must cleanse ourselves as we reflect on this year’s happenings. Specifically, we must let go of anything that’s weighing us down before the new year begins.
If you’d like to awaken your inner witch or wizard, there are several cleansing rituals you can perform beneath this Mourning Moon. First, think of all the past worries and problems you want to let go of. This can be something as simple as the splurge-y dress you bought yesterday that maybe you shouldn’t have bought yesterday, or as complex as a difficult breakup. Then, you can write all these memories down on a piece of paper and submerge it in a cup of water (since this element is connected to the Mourning Moon). That way you’re literally cleansing yourself of past baggage.
